Last week I blogged about a day out in Oxford. Today, I’d like to focus on one of the many colleges there. Christ Church is one of the largest Oxford colleges. And for any Harry Potter nerd, like me, it’s especially exciting because several locations around the college were used in the filming of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”. Like the staircase that all the kiddies are waiting on to go in and be sorted, right after they meet McGonagall for the first time.
Sadly, you can’t go in the Dinning Hall for the next few months as it is closed for repairs. I guess that’s what happens when your college is 100s of years old. I look back very fondly at my own university experience. And I had the privilege of going to a beautiful school. But Oxford is just in a completely different category isn’t it?
Famous alums include: Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll), multiple Prime Ministers, the Winklevoss twins, W H Auden, John Welsley, and William Penn.
